Job Description

The Manual seeks a freelance writer with experience and passion for the outdoors. This is a fast paced concert - you will complete a combination of assigned stories as well as the ones you present. If they are satisfied with their work, it could develop into a long-term and consistent working relationship.

The Manual (www.themanual.com) is a daily digital publication covering men’s lifestyle. Our goal is simple: We show men how to live a life that is more engaged. Whether it be fashion, food, drink, travel, grooming, or the outdoors, we’re here to provide insight into it all.

As our name, The Manual, implies, we offer a suite of expert guides on a wide range of topics, from how to tie a bow-tie to how to cook a steak. We don’t boss you around. We’re simply here to bring authenticity and understanding to all that enriches our lives as men on a daily basis.

The Manual was founded in 2012 in Portland, Oregon, by our parent site, Digital Trends, a daily digital technology publication.

Position Summary

The Manual is seeking an experienced freelance writer with a passion for the outdoors. This is a fast-paced gig – you will be completing a mix of assigned stories, as well as those you pitch. If we’re satisfied with your work, it could develop into a consistent, long-term working relationship.

Job Responsibilities

Include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • You will be finding and securing relevant images and other media to complement your written work.

There are no set hours for this position – only the expectation that fresh stories are turned in promptly on the assigned due date. Alternatively, we can work out a number of posts that will need to be provided per week.
